For an intimate, no-holds-barred look back, see Yves Saint Laurent: Une Passion Marocaine. It gives a front-row vantage point to life chez Saint Laurent. Handwritten by Bergé, the book has all the makings of a cozy diary and scrapbook. Even if you can’t read the text (it’s all in French), the photos tell the story: the designer ambling through a souk, Andy Warhol visiting, lazy afternoons outdoors with Betty Catroux — no posturing here, just unfiltered fun. It’s what makes this book, which also includes sketches and illustrations, such a gem.
